  3. Be able to have the recording sessions in a chronological way, because some times the recordings get lose when you are looking for it.

    You can lose the recorded class in the plataform when you are looking fot it and it is really anoying because when you miss a class and then you look if someone record it, it is just not there, but really it was just hidden in the reply's of the chat.

  4. Allow Sharing of Links in the Files Tab

    I want to be able to save website links in the files tab, just like I can save links in a file in One Drive. For instance, in my Pre-Employment Skills channel of my Life Skills class I created a folder in the Files tab called Typing. I want to be able to share website links to an online typing class and typing games. I realize I could create a Word Doc with a list of links, but that is just one more step. My students are Intellectually Disabled, and I want to make it as simple as possible for…

  6. Blocking student access to live use of PowerPoints

    When a teacher is trying use a PowerPoint in the meeting students should not be able to play around with it at the same time. Students should only be able to download the file to be worked through.

    I had students continuously messing around with the PowerPoint while I was trying to teach. It becomes counter-productive.

  11. Document links in chat attempt to open in browser, should open in Teams.

    Links to documents in Teams chat attempt to open in browser, should open in Teams instead, as navigating manually to the file in Teams (and bypassing the link) works

    Global back button takes you back to the former tab. Should take you back to the super or subfolder you were just in.

  16. computer at work

    My personal files are made from home PCs that appear on the computer at work.
    I find it hard to control personal files and shared files.
    I think there should be a symbol or a prominent display option on the menu bar.

  18. Please allow folders to be moved to a new location, not just files.

    When you click on a file, there are loads of lovely options that pop up, including "move." This needs to be expanded to whole folders so we don't need to recreate the folder system if we need to move one (or more) folders.

  19. Print to OneNote from files in Teams

    When I open a file shared with me in Teams, I can't print it to OneNote without downloading and saving it elsewhere first. I would like to minimize the locations where documents are saved. Could you please put in a Print / Print to OneNote option?

  20. Allow text highlighting/copy and paste from OneDrive files viewed in Teams

    When I choose Files on the far left menu, and choose a file to view, I cannot highlight text in it and copy and paste it unless I choose one of the Edit options. We would like our team members to be able to copy and paste from this view without accidentally deleting or changing something. Is it possible to add the capability of highlighting text when you are just viewing the document, without having to switch to an editable version?
